Learning About The Minor Arcana - The Pentacles

About The Pentacles

The Pentacles are all about rewarding efforts and the physical world. The Pentacles deal with our physical abilities and talents; they are about the relationships to personal service, as well as offering physical rewards for living those experiences. The ultimate quest shall be for the wisdom and the power to serve others, not the self. The Pentacles are the element of earth (think down-to-earth), the season of winter, the direction of south, and the colours green and brown.

Eight Of Pentacles Upright

You might have decided to work on details rather than the bigger picture in the hope to improve your situation. The Eight of Pentacles is a positive sign that shows how this conscientiousness is finally starting to have an effect. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will eventually obtain success. Of course, similar to how the young laborer on the card is concentrating so hard on perfecting the coins that they’ve lost sight of the world around them, you too might do the same.

If you aren’t currently engaged in something to better yourself or your life, then consider it a call to ask yourself what can be done. Should you pursue the acquisition of a new skill? Can you invest your time in something?

The Eight of Pentacles is a good omen with love. It shows that those who have feelings for you not only like you, they don’t question how much they like (or love) you. Relationship-wise, the two of you will create feelings of security, love, and friendship.

This card is a reminder to work on your relationships and to be as present as possible with people. Don’t let a good thing go to waste due to laziness.

Eight of Pentacles Reversed

Sometimes, attention to detail becomes a poisonous perfectionism. When a person becomes a perfectionist, the world becomes a self-controlled bubble where change is unwelcome. Yet, we are often not in control of all the rules, and so when one changes, perfectionists have a difficult time handling this new element. You need to learn how to take risks, shift gears, reverse or move forward. Don’t let your perfectionism become a barrier.

Sometimes, you have to throw the towel on a project that isn’t leading to the desired outcome. If your effort isn’t creating a tangible result, then you are merely wasting your time. Work on things that create opportunity. Don’t be afraid to see the bigger picture. Leave edges slightly frayed. Each of those strings can lead you to a new path.
